Glass of Time

The most powerful thing in Steven Universe.

It's ad-orb-able.


The Glass of Time (or simply the "The Hourglass") is a magical object that enables its user to travel back in time. If it is used incorrectly, it can create alternate timelines.

The Hourglass' primary ability enables the user to travel to a specified point in time, as it was used by Steven to interact with Stevens from alternate timelines,so they could form a band.

It allows the user to travel to the past, as Steven does several times in the episodes, and to the future, as it allowed Steven to accidentally foresee the dry ocean, something that would only happen four episodes later.
